If you are a fan of idlis and dosas, the options at iD would really impress you. Being a vegetarian restaurant and catering to movie-goers at Sathyam in Royapettah, iD scores with its ambience and fresh, contemporary take on the South Indian cuisine, making it one of the hottest South Indian food restaurants in Chennai.
Dosas are their USP and you can find more than 10 different varieties here. Remember the '99 Variety Dosa' shops in Bangalore? Well, they are popular for their Cheese Dosas and iD brings this popular dish to Chennai! Another popular one from Bangalore is the Mysore Masala Dosa served with three different chutneys and tasty sambhar. If you feel like experimenting, you could even ask them to customise your own dosa.
If you’re heading for lunch, you'll find iD's South Indian and Mini Meals are quite filling with the different poriyals and rice varieties. They've got snack too like bhajjis, pakodas and bondas along with rava kesari and halwa! You can wash down the food with the yummiest glass of buttermilk on hot days or go for filter coffee too.
The pricing might be considered as slightly overpriced, but the ambience is still amazingly simple yet satisfying. At iD, other than the food, the service too continues to be something else. Eager and prompt, the staff is always ready to help out once you walk through their doors.
